. the presidential debate and now we are fining out the obama administration is telling states to start adding more people on the medicaid doyle . some of you say that is black mailing state to make the healthcare law look success employ. weome to forbes on fox. we'll have elizabeth john and rick and vict toria and mark and rich. good to see you. emac, is it black mail? >> under the law. you will see half of the uninsured possibly going in through medicaid. the states administer medicaid and the deal with the federal government with the healthcare law, we will match a hundred percent of the cost. that will go down. if you don't do what we like we'll remove the federal fund the states, cops, fire men and teachers and transportation could get cut. >> mark, even supreme court roberts who liked the obama care and said it was not unconstitutional. but a state said who opts out stands to lose a small percentage of the medicaid funding but all of it. he said it is coercive . >> that is one justice's opinion and the fact is, it is a federal program . it was passed by congress and no cost to the state by th
a two point margin for obama before the debate. if the state is comfortably put away, why is the obama campaign next week increasing its buy in ohio by 50%? you don't add a lot of money, a lot, you know, millions plus on to a state you think you put away. that's is what's happening in ohio next week. president obama's campaign is adding a pretty significant amount to the tv there. lou: how concerned are you about money? by the way, if i misspoke, i apologize, but we got to find out who is running the american crossroads, because i want to talk to them more often. >> his name is steven law. he was the ceo of american crossroads, and a very able guy. lou: i got you. until then, if it's all right, we'll just stick with you. is that all right? >> all right. >> in ohio, around the country, we're looking at the wall street journal reporting $150 million raised last month for the obama campaign. we'll told by the romney campaign theirs is going to be impressive, but we don't have any numbers. do you have a sense that the romney campaign is keeping pace with that extraordinary fundraising resu
a obama is numerically ahead in each of the nine battleground states although in florida, virginia, north carolina, romney is well within striking distance of each of those. we will be revisiting florida, virginia and ohio to see what impact the debates may have had. these are states obama carried, all of which in 2008, close to or above 50% and each of them as you look at the numbers to some degree reflecting his approval rating and a general improvement in the right direction, wrong direction numbers that have occurred the last several months. the president has enjoyed an unfavorable positive rating in each state. romney's likability score has been more mix. with the exception of virginia, north carolina and florida, his strongest three states, his likability has been upside-down. that may have changed but we will be in our next round of polls interested to see if the debate has reset the campaign in terms of these numbers. you have heard a lot of -- that was sold. pathways to the 270 alecto world votes and how president obama probably has more pathways to that war easier ways of puttin
, with volunteers going door to door in battleground states. president obama has no public events today. he will head to california tomorrow, where he is expected to tout the new jobs number, 7.8%, and some big fund-raising numbers out today. president obama and the democrats raised $181 million in september, the highest single-month total so far. more on all these stories throughout the next two hours. >>> the campaign focus shifts a bit next week to the vice presidential nominees. paul ryan and joe biden will face off in their only debate next thursday night. paul ryan has just left his four-day debate camp. he is heading back to wisconsin for a fund-raiser tonight. and as for the vice president, we check in with msnbc news campaign embed carrie dan. she's embedded with vice president joe biden's team. carrie, vice president biden's schedule shows him to be in wilmington, delaware, right now, and for the next few days. what is planned for him? >> that's right, milissa. he's going to be doing his own debate camp there, up until a day before the debate. he's spending time with chris van hol
'm president of the united states -- >> both president obama and mitt romney seem confident, but is that because their campaigns have a dramatic strategy shift up their sleeves? the president's team has backed away from criticizing romney as too conservative and returned to labeling him as a flip-flopper. and governor romney appears to be moving towards the center, shifting strategy in october, is that even legal? joining me in our war room is karen finney, msnbc political analyst and former dnc communications director, and chris wilson, republican pollster and strategist. thank you both for joining us. >> hey, melissa. >> karen, a day after the debate, president obama went back over some familiar ground. let's listen. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but it couldn't have been mitt romney, because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year, promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy. the fellow on stage last night said he didn't know anything about that. >> you know, ka
the next wave of polling. if he is closing the gap in the swing states, there will be immense pressure on president obama to show up in the second debate. >> the president's critics have said that he was essentially sleepwalking through history here, like he wanted to be somewhere else. >> he was sleepwalking through history. i do not think i have ever said this on television before. i told you so. he has never been a natural debater. he has to always be beaten almost by his tap into being a good debater. the only time i thought he was a superb evader was with john mccain, and they really had to knock him up to do that. he is a competitor, he will be that, but romney has done this consistently brought the campaign. he has been a very good debater when he had to be. he had good debates in the primaries when he needed to. obama, this was a very big missed opportunity. looking down all the time was legal. >> colby? where was the presence fastball? >> he did not have it. he did not have anything. they are dancing in the end zone, the republicans, but they are not even at halftime. the pres
president obama, his campaign surrogates, when they campaign in these early voting states, urging people, one, to be able to register, make sure they're registered and also vote early. banking all the sure obama votes to concentrate on the swing voters and the undecideds closer to election day. >> yeah. earlier in the week, the pennsylvania judge ruling that voter i.d. rules, they can't be imment impleme implemented. how does that affect another key state? >> people were worried the pennsylvania voter i.d. law could make the pennsylvania contest a little closer than the polls subject. right now president obama in most polls in the keystone state is up in high double digits. this could disproportion knitly affect minorities and others seen to be democratic voters, could end up hurting them, but this ruling that the pennsylvania voter i.d. law essentially will not be the law for 2012 pretty much eliminates a lot of democratic worries that that law could end up making the race closer than it currently appears in the polls. >> i want to know if you see a big difference in 24 hours, because w
, obama 47% and romney 46%. you know the state better than most. what do you think romney has to do to tip it in his favor in. >> well, here's what he better not do. ten days ago he was behind. he came from behind and he is in a dead heat, as you know right now. if he plays prevent defense and i know his consultants are going to want him to be very, very careful and not make a mistake. that's how you will lose to barack obama. in the radio clip, my point was, he is going to come out swinging and he's going to come out maybe with a few punches below the belt. romney is going to do what he did in the first debate. that is, american voters are very interested in style, maybe even more style over substance and that was the first debate you've ever seen where barack obama was outstyled. body language, mitt romney looked much more presidential and come out mitt romney and continue to strike contrasts say that we are not a government with a country, we're a country with a government and empower the people in every way possible and point out that, you know, americans have lost 40% of their net wor
the xiv said -- i am the state. and mr. obama became very close in an press conference to saying i am the change. the title is actually from suggestion of my editor. and publishers, i had entertained another possibility, which was actually suggested to me my my friend bill. barack obama, what the hell were we thinking? [laughter] as opposed to some of my conservative colleagues and friends, i don't think we get very far by labeling president obama a socialist or by trying to trace his foreign origins or his secret muslim "devotions" nor i do think even that we greatly alumni nate things by to -- as my old friend argues in his movie and two books about obama. i think it's fairer to begin fairer and more useful in the end -- excuse me. to begin admitting president obama is what he call himself namely a progressive or a liberal. and the rest of the title is on barack obama and the crisis of liberalism. i don't mean by this the kind of crisis that was like this is the kind of national emergency that invites the expansion of government. but rather crisis in the old fashioned sense of turni
. the economic recovery and job creation is being led by red state republican governors. president obama did not focus on job creation. job creation is also tied to spending and deficits. he gave us $16 trillion in debt. so while we do see an improvement in job creation, it's not what it should be. the red state governors are leading it. and if president obama were following their lead, the national mood and economy would be much, much better right now. >> do you think that conspiracy theories such as being said across the country right now, do you that damages mitt romney? it's getting a lot of play nationwide. it really is. you can't take that away. do you think that's damaging? >> people are entitled to their opinion. this is a free country. it's free speech. i personally accept the numbers as they are. we need to be talking about the issues. the facts, there are still over 20 million people out of work. gas has doubled under this president. >> okay. scott, let's move on to you. florida's unemployment rate stands at 8.8%, one point higher than the national average that came out yesterday.
post" poll. 52% of likely voters across swing states side with obama. 41% romney in the new national poll. the problem here there was a margin of error of 8 points and there was a sample size of 161 people? >> right that poll should have never one and hats off to jennifer rubin for the "washington post" who called her own newspaper on that poll and pointed out the eight-point margin of error and the slimness of it. what are the underlying assumptions about who is being polled. >> jim garrity talked about the sample size. the other problem is who cares about whether the whole nation thinks one thing or the other. even if the sample size is good, which a lot is not it's part of the election. >> part of the narrative for me on the polls we don't get a quick snapshot. 116 people, 500 people and you don't know what the question is. as we know, you can ask a question a lot of different ways to get a lot of different answers. >> jon: it's also true that i think most people when they read a headline, and "washington post" made a headline out of those poll results, most people won't be lookin
close race. in a state where barack obama is expected to win by at least 20 points here at least 12% of reporters want to send a democrat for a second term. she has every advantage right now. the problem is she has got to close a deal. this is a state doesn't elect women, never have. that's a big challenge for her. the opportunity right now is scott brown has hurt himself in the first two debates by debating style and continuing to call her native american heritage into question. >> bill: why is that hurting him. everybody knows it was a ruse by dr. warren to use that why would that hurt brown? she used that to try to advance her economic career. i think that's a fairly significant issue. >> she claims she is and she claims she did not. i think if you go back and look at the claims. >> bill: even the cherokee indians say she is not. even the cherokees say she is not. >> that would be like the irish saying o'reilly is not irish. is he lithuanian. we can prove it. >> here is the difference, bill. scott brown stood next to her in a debate and repeatedly went all night long for one hour
. >> this is manna from heaven. >> do you worry you've offended the 47%. >> it's not elegantly stated. >> obama: my opponent has been trying to reposition. >> it's completely wrong. >> obama: he said he would eliminate funding for public television. thank goodness someone is getting tough on big bird. we didn't know that big bird was driving the federal government. >> cenk: great numbers unelement has fallen to a 44-month low to 7.8%. it used to be at 8.1% so we're finally below 8%. 114,000 jobs have been added and the july and august numbers added moreobobhich happepe all the t time.im thisthss gat gewatew foror america. more people back at work. so of course the republicans are celebrating right? of course not. no way. they're panicked over it. oh, my god this is going to cause us this election. dammit, i can't believe more americans are working. now go to unbelieving. unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate, so change numbers. that's ironic coming from jack welsh because g.e. was fined by the fcc $50 million for cooking their books for about a decade. it bega
for the democratic committee to invest in the race, obama is up 12, 14 points in the state, a very blue state, but made this a competitive race which no one expected. >> and a lot of people are independents. >> that's right. still ahead, the supreme court is back in town and the new term promises to bring new controversy. and next week, affirmative action, we'll preview that case and potential blockbusters next. >> well, maybe nothing can stop the drama of june's controversial health care ruling and the supreme court starting off with a bang and revisit the issue of racial preferences and the use of austin's race and undergraduate admissions process and violates the confusion. we're back with dan henninger and colin joins us. in this, what's at stake. >> paul shall what's at stake is whether or not schools can use racial preference ins their admissions process period. this was brought by abigail fisher, a white woman denied admission at university of texas even though some of her scores were higher than minority candidates. and she sued under equal protection grounds and the justices have to
60 votes in the united states senate. obama took office during an economic cataclysm and he decided in an emergency change in the country was more important than changing the capital. the central drama of this book is the middle central section, how obama pushed this change into law in his first month. wasn't clean and it wasn't pretty. rahm emanuel is in the middle of it so it wasn't suitable for younger years either. it is a case study in obama to the dissolution addicts of the left, it proved obama was just like every other politician. more interested in cutting deals and chasing dreams, desperate to compromise with republicans who are only interested in surrender. to the fever swamps on the right, it revealed obama as a euro socialist radical, a thuggish centavos style partisan and would-be wind who is deferring to his leftist congressional overlords. in reality the stimulus was early evidence obama was pretty much what he said he was, a data oriented left of center technocrat who is above all a pragmatist, comfortable with compromise, unwilling to sacrifice the good in pursuit
that we launched today in eight states, $12 million. >> this is what president obama said the jobless rate would be if we passed stimulus, 5.6%. this is really where it is come 8.1%. the difference? about 3.7 million jobs. $5ma's spending drew was trillion deeper into debt and now we have fewer jobs than when he started. but obama promised versus what he delivered. >> it holds the president to account for a very big promise that he made when they were selling the stimulus. the president had a plan to fix it could they spent $800 million on all kinds of different things to fix the economy. they spend the money and the jobs did not follow. what we got was that. when you talk about it in those terms, here's what the president sold to the american people on how to fix the economy. these were the results. not only did not create the jobs, but we have a lot of debt to pay off. we tried to hold elected officials to account for the record and also for the promises they have made. that is why politicians don't like super pacs because we're able to do this. >> living here between the new york and ph
not sound good, but we have created a welfare state. >> to blame it all on president obama is even worse. to declare the president of the united states is manipulating so people will stay and vote democrat? i think that is the most ridiculous thing i have ever heard. such a cynical view of the presidency and of government. that cannot possibly reflect -- >> your response? >> i think a far better approach than a dependency is removing the barrier the federal government puts in place to small businesses and allowing entrepreneurs and small businesses to drive. >> what barriers? >> i am very happy to discuss the various. >> i wish she would. >> let him finish and make his point, then you can respond. >> what texans are looking for, and what is inherent in the east coast of texas, is that we are not looking for handouts. we're looking for the chance to the entrepreneur is, to work to achieve. i think there have been a host of regulatory policies under barack obama that has killed jobs, ranging from obamacare to dodd-frank, to the abuse and enforcement of environmental laws, the ban on the xl
, with governor romney picking up some momentum. president obama returned to the golden state this weekend. there's high interest in several congressional races in the state. will california tip the scales for the control of the u.s. house? governor brown vetoes few of the more than 1,800 bills on his desk, as he presses for support of proposition 30 on the november ballot. and gas jumped as much as 20 cents overnight, with the spike expected to continue. plus, anti-domestic violence leader estra sola on making all violence an issue of global concern, coming up next. >>> good evening, i'm belva davis and welcome to "this week in northern california." on our news panel tonight, dan walters, political column nis for "the sacramento bee." in studio, we have tom vacar, computer editor for ktvu news and josh richman, regional political reporter for the bay asia news group. and joe garofoli, political reporter for "the san francisco chronicle." joe, you were in denver for the first presidential debate. must have been hard covering it, since there were so many people tweeting that night. tell us what's
the debate may have had. these nine states are states that obama carried all of which in 2008. he's close 0 to or above 50% in each of them. if you look at the numbers, to some degree reflecting the approval rating and the general improvement in the right destruction, wrong direction numbers that have occurred over the last several months. the president has enjoyed a unfavorable positive rating in each state. romney's likability score has been more mixed. and with the exception of virginia, north carolina, and florida, his strongest three states, his likability has been upside down. it may have changed. we're going to be clear in the mexico round of polls interested to sew if the debate has in fact reset that campaign in terms of these numbers. now you heard a lot about the pathways. that was -- [inaudible] pathways to the 270 electoral votes and how president obama probably has more pathways to that or easier aways of putting that together because it built an advantage in the blue state/red state differences than romney has. let me make a couple of points on this. i'll give you a sense of
are already getting people to the polls. those states are voting now. and the dnc and obama for america has got a vote bus tour that is in ohio today that is encouraging people to vote early. so, we're going to bring them out. >> you say, though, that we're heading in the right direction. certainly it looks like that when you talk about the unemployment rate at 7.8%. it has dropped. but the real important number here is that 114,000 jobs that were added. this doesn't keep up, though, with the population growth. so, as far as you saying we're heading in the right direction, i mean, romney and other republicans say that's not enough and indicates how sluggish the economy actually remains. so, is the jobs report really a as good as obama is touting it to be? >> well, the president has also said we have a lot of work to do. we need to continue moving forward. and that's why he has a plan to create 1 million new manufacturing jobs to invest in businesses and manufacturers that create jobs here in this country. to invest in 100,000 additional math and science teachers. to train 2 million addition
the republican party, publicly stated is to do whatever it takes to see to it that obama will only serve one term. what underlines that? through the country were going to do whatever we can't do get this black man out of here. >> it is not necessarily bases. >> is a racist thing. >> that was cordoned from "sesame street." either way, speaking of celebrities turning sour, what happened to david letterman? i remember -- she knows. i remember the days when he was actually really, really, really funny. now he is one of those guys comment that even though there's like a dozen empty urinals, still walks up right next to you in the bathroom and just starts telling you all of their opinions and their creepy and disturbing. ladies, take my word for it. but seriously, you can't turn into the verbal equivalent of someone who sends you e-mail and all caps because if it is an all caps it's got to be true. i'm a 15 come he is interviewing nbc news ticker brian williams. note to visibly uncomfortable at even williams becomes as letterman raises the antennae of his invisible helmets and begins communicating with
obama has run twice as many tv ads in nine key states as the gop challenger mitt romney. the obama campaign has run 233,000 ads in those states compared to -- i know your paper is still conducting its latest poll there in the key stoet states. but you published a poll in september. that poll showed president obama ahead of mitt romney by 11 points at that point, 50 to 39. all those obama tv ads may have had a big impact. what are the changes you expect in your next poll? >> well, after the debate performance i'd expect that romney is going to get another look at pennsylvania voters. so we'll probably see maybe a little bump for him, or some weak obama supporters might may move to undecided. it's sort of a reassessment maybe. and also interestingly, the obama folks have not been advertising in pennsylvania since about the end of august. they hadn't felt the need. >> you know, but a lot of people political analysts are going to say that your state is largely out of reach for mitt romney. what do you say to that? >> i'd say yeah, it's aup hill climb. it trends democratic. however, the
. and this in colorado, a swing state, where both romney and obama have been courting the large hispanic vote. that wouldn't have happened if my guest on this week's broadcast had been moderating the debate, but their participation was rejected by the tiny group of insiders who set the rules. that's a shame because george ram mows and maria elena sorena are two of the most popular journalists. they work for the most important spanish language network in the country, univision. i met them for the first time earlier this week when they were in town to receive the emmy award for lifetime achievement from the national academy of television arts and sciences. here's part of the video presentation that introduced them to the emmy audience. >> they're two of the most well-recognized journalists in the united states. pioneers and advocates. for more than two decades maria and george have informed million of hispanics through the popular evening newscast. their brand of journalism is characterized not only by subjective and perspectives, but also by a high degree of social advocacy. in the last three
you really mean to call barack obama, the president of the united states lazy? >> yes, i think you saw him admit it the night before when he delivered the pizzas. he said, you know, they're making me do this work. he didn't want to prepare for this debate. he's lazy and disengaged. >> so. >> so andrea mitchell was all outraged and governor, do you care to walk back that comment? hell no, she was disgusted with the fact that dnc communication director on the same network said governor romney was a liarment she didn't say he was lying. governor romney is opening his mouth, he's lying. that didn't seem to be too outrageous, but saying he's lazy. >> president obama admitted he was lazying talking to barbara walters. >> yes, but you're not allowed to say it. >> wait a second, wait a second. he said having grown up in hawaii he thinks there's laziness in him a guy who is a super achiever, oh, my gosh, a super achiever, a top academic guy. president. >> how do we know that. >> juan, brain washed by the-- >> and let me tell you something, here is how brain washed i was, i think he was presiden
of millions of dollars worth of attack ads, especially in swing states that the obama campaign spent painting mitt romney as some kind of insensitive, clueless bank account that became an islands kind of guy, and he wiped all that away. and also i think it was pretty clear that for the first time the president was put on the defensive as far as his record is concerned. and that's because of this bubble he's been in for the last four years, and he obviously couldn't defend it. and finally, piers, i thought one of the solemn moments in that debate was when jim lehrer talked about avoiding this cliff we're walking towards, and romney talked about walking across this abyss. the president's response was sometimes you have to say no to people? and mitt said the first two years of his presidency, they just rammed things through without a single republican vote. that makes it probably one of the more important debates in american history, and perhaps i'm exaggerating because i'm so happy. >> i can't blame you. i can't blame any republicans because it's been a very bruising few weeks for the republica
